Mutations in the GJB2 gene at the DFNB1 locus on chromosome 13q12 are associated with autosomal recessive non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). R143W mutation which is the common mutation in Ghana is widely reported in some journals as the commonest mutation among black Africans. This study examined mutation in GJB2 gene known to be responsible for non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss and its pattern in our environment using molecular techniques. Data on the age, sex, age at… CONTINUE READING
